Key Findings

Infection with NA followed by GC did not lead to significant changes in histology, which would normally be expected in a CeD person exposed to gluten. Median Vh:Cd ratios were unchanged after GC (2.60-2.63; P=.98). Local immunity response appeared dampened in the GC-3 group where mean IgA-tTG titers significantly declined after GC-3 g (slope: ‒1.012; 95% confidence interval: ‒1.166- ‒0.363; P=.005). This is in contrast with the increase in IgA-tTG typically seen in CeD individuals following gluten exposure.
